Young Kiki was abandoned at a Buddhist retreat center in Vacaville, CA. When found by her rescuer, she was suffering from a terrible leg injury. It had been left unattended, was swollen, infected, and very painful. She was hobbling around on three legs. Her body showed signs that she had given birth to multiple litters in the past. Kiki's rescuer rushed her to an emergency vet hospital. While her wound was cleaned and stapled shut, Kiki remained gentle and quiet.
On October 26th, Kiki was led towards a new, unfamiliar car. Without hesitation, she leapt inside and turned to the people watching as if to say, "Okay! Let's get this show on the road!"
Enjoy these photos of Kiki's homecoming. Note Kona the cat, peeking over the edge of a brand new dog bed where Kiki is sprawled out sound asleep.
Enjoy your new life, Kiki!!
